Utah Jazz Signs 5-Year-Old to One-Day Contract

The Utah Jazz signed 5-year-old JP Gibson to a one-day contract that allowed him to play a special scrimmage, where he scored a basket, with a little help from his team.

Gibson, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, according to ESPN, donned a Jazz uniform, complete with his name and the number 1 on his jersey.

He signed the contract with Jazz president Randy Rigby and his family by his side. His parents, Josh and Megan, and his 2-year-old sister watched as he made it official and then took the court at EnergySolutions Arena.

The Gibson family was hosted by the team and photographer Jon Diaz's "Anything Can Be" project, which creates books for children with cancer, according to the site.

The Jazz even tweeted out an adorable photo of JP, Rigby and the Gibson family.

Congrats, JP!
